Regarding the recent article “Red meat boosts cancer risk: study” (Co-operator, April 2, page 1), I wonder if spraying glyphosate on standing crop has a connection. We know that grain loses germination after being sprayed with glyphosate. Seed growers cannot spray standing crop because of the germination factor. Maltsters reject glyphosatesprayed barley. Chemicals could be the reason for the increased cancer risk. Some time could be spent finding the causes of cancer as well as the cures.
